Leticia Casanova: Trustee
I am a dentist who specialises in Periodontics. Having studied in New York I relocated to the UK where I started practising and completed my PhD in Diabetes. After teaching at Guy’s hospital for 7 years and working in different dental clinics, my husband and I started our dental clinic London Periodontics and Implant Dentistry – more recently called BITE. It was then, when we realised the amount of scrap precious metal which accumulates over time. After becoming a mother myself, we came up with the idea of using the discarded precious dental restorations and old jewelry to raise money for underprivileged children. We are very privileged to have been born into nourishing homes and parents and we must be as active as we can in bringing balance to those suffering from unfortunate inequality.
My husband and I have 4 children and I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being in nature and painting.
